DHS gave millions in contracts to firm where acting chief's wife works
A Homeland Security spokesperson said Wolf was unaware of the contracts until contacted by the media. Wolf's Senate confirmation hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
WASHINGTON — The consulting firm where the wife of acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is an executive has been awarded more than $6 million in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security since September 2018, according to records on the federal government website USA Spending.
Wolf became chief of staff at the Transportation Security Administration, a DHS agency, in 2017 and chief of staff to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in 2018. He took over as acting secretary in November and has been nominated to become secretary. His confirmation hearing before the Senate is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday,
Wolf's wife, Hope Wolf, is vice president of professional staff operations at Berkeley Research Group, a consulting firm. Although the company has a long history of federal contracts, it did not do work for DHS until after Wolf became the TSA's chief of staff in 2017.
A DHS spokesperson said Wolf was not aware of the contracts until he was contacted by the media.
The Trump administration, just like the Trump organization, is now a criminal enterprise.
I hope the Supreme Court seat was worth it..."conservatives"...
You only had to sell your souls to get it.
